You are completely naked in the middle of the street getting sexually assaulted by a mob of angry men and they're hand raping the holy hell out of your va-jay-jay and your sweet derriere forty minutes strong, taking pictures as they spank your ass and motorboat the shit out of your tits like a real live motorboatin' son-of-a-bitch but that's not embarrassing at all when you share it on national television. Nooooo. It's just the dongs. Only dongs are embarrassing to women. You sound so clueless right now.
I disagree. I hear you and I understand how hard this must be for her. I don't think she is her normal self when she deals with anything related to this incindent. She did lie though on this point. The 25 minute point. She has since admitted it was more like 40 minutes. I think it was even longer than that. She clearly had sign off authority on the final edit of her own interview. She knew it was way more than 25 minutes. That was a lie and it was a lie told specifically to make the assault seem less sever than it was. No one would believe that she was in their clutches for over and hour and was not raped. I think the fact she is slowly increasing the time with every interview tells me that she feels she has not done the right thing on that particular point. She and we can all split hairs about whether omitting information is lying. Saying something was 25 minutes when it was really an hour is a lie. That's like me saying I have a 8 inch penis when it is really only 4.5 inches. They know to the minute how long she was gone. And I know to the mm how big my penis is. To say otherwise is a lie. They and she have lied about it. For those that care mine's about 6.4, which is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. She has nothing to be ashamed of either. Ah the power of analogy.

Regardless of whatever we think the part 2 video seems credible maybe not all eyewitness accounts in it but basically the embarrassment on her part I think is because the large numbers of men that raped her with penis and the humiliating sex acts that were done to her. Her statements on her statements on Facebook confirm this.
Then let me further extrapolate on the analogy. Imagine your penis broken and ripped off by some evildoers and you being treated in the hospital after that. Shortly after your operation you THOUGHT you were strong enough to talk about your penis being broken and ripped but when you talk about how long your penis really is now (much shorter) you just are so emotional that some people strongly advise you to reconsider. You - in no real condition to think clearly - say yes and sign everything they give to you.
You want to tell everybody how short your penis is and all that but you know in your state of confusion and weakness you got swayed earlier on. What do you do now? And: Did you really lie in the first place?
I meant to say that someone I know, who is in the profession, actually, said that this is totally not so easy to come out. There are probably plenty of advisors stopping her along the way. Truth of the matter this CAN affect her career, even Carol Jenkins says that specifically. This is not even reading between the lines.

yea, and to say that CBS has no power over her is simply not true. Come on, who do you think she is, the CEO? Don't you think she needs to consider them too?
Why do you think the journos are so much railing around her? Maybe because there was more to the story. And more to what she said, as we can clearly see things cut out.
Anyway, what ever it is, I am very impressed with her as a person and as a journalist. And I do agree with those that say we should stop second guessing everything. I still come here and post, but it is only because I pretty much know that her experience should not be belittled. Period.
how would this hurt her career? If what she already told us did not hurt it, how would a more severe attack do so? considering that she has recieved numerous awards and been asked to speak at many universities? hurting her career was what women thought before, but since Logan came out with lurid details, her career is fine, the only thing hurting her is her PTSD, and thats an issue within herself, which can be corrected.
Ok. On the one hand, I agree with you. On the other hand... I am hearing differently. I can somewhat understand it, myself, based on the fact that a bulk of her career is Middle East. They do not give women awards for comming out with dignity with things like that. Yes, and the dong thing does make a HUGE difference there. I am hearing that the reason why she is not in the Middle East right now is more than just her own, natural, and quite understandible apprehension. Her bosses do need to consider the Middle Eastern thinking even more than she. She is in turmoil as you can imagine. So, she is getting many many awards, which, in practically everyone's opinion here she deserves. But this is here.

to the troll who registered my moniker -- I guess you can explain why I keep on comming here. Joking about things like that is very cruel and inappropriate. A lot of us here realized that after a while, which I find amazing.
